Anyone seen this yet?

Looks like a pretty slick set up compared to the plastic pieces of junk one can get. Might have to put it on the Christmas list this year.

Those are pretty slick. I might have to get some, especially for only $16.50.

Just to clarify, the $19.50 is for the GUIDES only, not a complete box and/or saw.

“With these saw guides, you can make your own miter box, customized to fit the saw you use to ensure accurate cuts. Molded from Delrin®, a modern bushing material, the guides are self-lubricating, allowing your saw to glide smoothly through the cut.

The set includes 45°, 90° and 135° guides, enough to create a single miter box. Perhaps the best part about these guides is that they can be reused, letting you salvage them from a box that has seen better days to create a new one.”

I’ll be ordering a set for sure at that price. I like how they have the keel at the bottom so you can route a dado and be guaranteed perfect alignment. I also like that they can be spaced to fit my favorite saw.

I guess I should have clarified that in the original post. Thought it was self evident. Most of their jig stuff needs some user input.

Bandit, you’ll notice that you are able to comment on my posts, though I am unable to comment on yours.Yours is a neat set up that looks like it would work with LV’s offering as well.

Changed that…

Maybe LV copied this idea?
